Maximalism: The Graphic Design of Decadence & Excess
A sumptuously extravagant book which examines design that appeals to the senses through luxury, profusion and excess
After a decade in which minimalism has held sway over the design industry, many designers are now rejecting the limitations of pared-down modernism in favor of a more rich and vibrant ˘maximal÷ aesthetic.
The book is not just about expensive projects for luxury brands (although of course these feature): it is about examples of print that appeal to any one of the senses in a powerful and unusual way. These include packaging, magazines, brochures, books, identity jobs and other forms of print work.
An essential resource for designers, delivering the newest trend and the means to create the style.
